museum of arts and design

Here are a few of my favourites from the MAD museum contemporary jewelry exhibition. As photography and jewellery are both my great interests, it was inspiring to see them combined.

Multiple Exposures: Jewelry and Photography  explores how contemporary jewelry artists transform and add new meaning to the pervasive images of this digital age.  
Since the late 1830s, photographs have been integrated into jewelry as tokens of memory, devotion, or mourning. Contemporary photo-based jewelry artists extend these traditional functions and forms, while enlisting new technologies and techniques to engage a great variety of personal and social concerns.
